Event Details

Join us to fill empty bowls with hope. Empty Bowls is the signature event for Urban Ministries of Durham, the private, non-sectarian downtown charity that provides food, shelter and a future to neighbors in need, ending homelessness for 245 people in a single year. At Empty Bowls 2014, you'll have the chance to sample soups prepared by a dozen local restaurants and vote for your favorites. Local artists and artisans are making hundreds of hand-crafted bowls, and with certain tickets, you get to select one to take home. The family-friendly evening includes a live jazz combo and the chance to learn more about the important work Urban Ministries of Durham does to feed, clothe and shelter our neighbors.
